Hermann Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

Gustave Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Hermann Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

— Exchange between American psychologist Gustave Gilbert and Nazi leader Hermann Göring; recounted in Gilbert's Nuremberg Diary (1947)

"Last time I looked, there were about 6.9 billion people on this rock. I’d be surprised if as many as 100,000 of them are anarchist activists, if as many as 100 million of them are consciously ideological anarchists of any variety, or if as many as another 800 million have ever been confronted with and consciously considered the anarchist idea (THE anarchist idea: Perish the state).

But even if those — to my mind inflated — numbers proved out, that would leave six billion people to reach.

We — me, you, everyone reading this piece — are a thin black line standing between those six billion people and 'a boot stamping on a human face — forever.'"


— Thomas L. Knapp, "The Thin Black Line" (December 8th, 2010)

I always wonder about the question of " would you rather live in the asention of a society or the decline" I really think we are living in the decline of one of the greatest empires in modern history. And I don't like it, only because I won't live to light the funeral piers of the dead
